Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Bridgewater and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at Capic Cat Adoption And Pet Information Center, where Oahu the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Gator, a Pit Bull Terrier mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
